On April 30, 1789 the former Rev. War general George Washington was inaugurated to be the first president of the United States of America, and the only one to ever be elected unanimously. He was only nervous because knew he was responsible for setting a precedent.
The U.S. owed lots of money from the Revolutionary war to win their independence. They owed money to farmers and other people and couldn't pay them back. They were in a Financial Crisis.
Problems in the NW Territory
Weren't we supposed to leave a month ago.
The U.S. was in massive debt due to money owed from the Rev. War. Someone had to fix this and Washington gave the job to his Secretary of Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. He came up with a plan that had 3 parts. Only two got passed by congress, they are to add all state and national debt together and to create a national bank. Alexander Hamilton rescued us from our debt.
To raise money, Congress imposed a tax on all Whiskey products and many farmers who sold Whiskey apposed it. They started protesting and it eventually led to an armed rebellion, so Washington sent out the mitita to control it. This showed washington wasn't messing around.
Following the Treaty of Paris the British promised to remove their troops in the NW territory, but they never did. Instead they supplied the natives with guns and the Natives attacked the Americans with them.
France was suffering with massive debt and less and less jobs and everyone was getting new ideas. Along with some inspiration from the U.S. revolution France started its own revolution because of all of these events.
